So over Spring Break one of our bucket list items was plant a vegetable garden. We bought several starter plants & transplanted them into bigger pots. The kids were thrilled to be growing something new.
Well, the plants got so big that they couldn't be in the pots anymore. I begged Trek to build me a garden box. And because I married the best guy EVER, he built me TWO. They are my mother's day gift this year & I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE them.
They are built out of super sturdy wood & then he put barriers on the bottom so that pests & weeds can't get through. Then we added 2 tons of soil to the boxes. He built them 2 feet tall so that I wouldn't have to bend over to do my garden. They are right there at my waist's length. But it did require a TON of soil.
Once the soil was in, I was able to transplant all my growing veggies into their new home. They are already growing like crazy.
The rectangle box is my salsa box. It has:
4 cherry tomatoes, 2 large tomatoes, 10 white onions, 4 purple onions, 3 jalapeños, 3 banana peppers, chives, 2 cilantro plants, basil, & 3 cantaloupes.
My L shaped box is my salad box. He has:
16 different lettuces (spinach, romaine, butter leaf, leafy), 4 carrots, tons of sugar snap peas & regular pea pods,
4 broccoli plants, 2 green peppers plants, & 3 cucumber plants.
Everything is growing beautifully right now. I even have flowers/fruits on my tomatoes, green peppers, & jalapeño bushes.
I'm so excited to see how it all turns out. Thank you to my amazing husband who is SO talented & can build anything.
